Whether it's a documentary or a business promo, beautifully lit “photographic” interviews are the norm in the professional film and video world--this is where the term “high production values” begins to show up in your work.
The documentary is the original form of filmmaking. It is an informative, evocative art form that is alive and well today, from the feature films of Michael Moore to Youtube shorts.
This class will be focused on developing your documentary project, from finding a topic to polishing the edit to distribution. Some basic technique in audio and camera as it applies to documentary will be covered but for more extensive coverage on those techniques, you should look to our filmmaking classes.
This class provides students with a practical and comprehensive grounding in film production including lighting, camera, composition, audio, and editing. Students are provided with the crucial foundation for an understanding of the entire production process. Students also receive a hands-on overview of digital editing basics in our editing lab -- including audio.
